"Searching the All-Galicia Database & Map Room Online"- Wednesday, October 30 at the NY Public Library in Manhattan #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

On Wednesday, October 30 at 5:30PM I will be speaking at the New York
Public Library in a talk co-sponsored by the New York Genealogical and
Biographical Society:

"Searching the All-Galicia Database & Gesher Galicia Map Room Online"

The All Galicia Database (AGD) on the Gesher Galicia website has over
230,000 records >from 79 data sources >from birth, death, marriage and
divorce records to directories, school, voter, tax and landowner
records >from the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia, which
today covers eastern Poland and western Ukraine. These diverse
community resources cover all the ethnic/religious groups >from these
towns: Jews, Poles, Ukrainians, Ruthenians, Germans, Catholics and
Greek Catholic. Gesher Galicia?s digital ?Cadastral Map Room? has the
largest online collection of property maps >from the Austrian Empire.
These high-resolution maps often show the names of the landowners and
shop-owners written onto plots, fields and in market square. Learn
about our Galician Archival Records Project and how to use the AGD, in
conjunction with the Cadastral Map Room and the GG records inventory,
to find your ancestors and link the indexes and maps to the original
source documents >from overseas archives. There will be a brief
overview on the best approach to Galician research presenting examples
of unusual 18th ? 20th century records which can expand your
genealogical research and enhance your knowledge about the lives of
your ancestors.

Location: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Fifth Avenue between 40th
and 42nd Street, New York City - 5:30PM

Even if you are not a Galitzianer, the unusual records covered in this
talk have applications to research in other locales. No RSVPs
necessary. Free and open to the public.

The talk will last about 75 minutes. The Israel Genealogical Research
Association (IGRA) is also planning to offer this talk as a free
webinar. Consult their website next week for more details:

Seeking possible family tie to Chaim WEIZMANN #general

Bert Blevis <bcblevis@...>
 

My mother who passed away in 1982 and her sisters always claimed that
Chaim WEIZMANN was a cousin; however, since I became interested in
genealogy, I have never been able to establish in what way he was a
cousin, as much as I've tried.

Her mother was Bertha BEGUN and aunt was Channah Ester BEGUN both born
in Lahyshun, now Belarus (Feb. 1875 and about 1865, respectively). Her
father was Elias SOSKIN born Sept. 7, 1877 in Bobruisk, Belarus.

Another family name that might be relevant is that of Meyer Isaac COLODNY
born in Lahyshun about 1865. Does anyone have any idea how I might pursue
this relationship? I would be most appreciative of any leads.

Seeking GREEN Family from Ukmerge, Lithuania #general

Bettye Heinrich <bettye31@...>
 

I am researching a family that may have come >from Ukmerge, Lithuania to
the USA via England.

I obtained the name of Ukmerge >from the records of the Washington Cemetery
in Brooklyn, Kings Co, New York

This is the information that I have found:

Benjamin GREEN b May 1865 died on 15 August 1919 Kings Co, NY.
He is buried in the Wilkomir Young Men's Benevolent Association Section 2
Post 203
His Hebrew name was Bentzion b Yosef Mordechai

His wife was Esther b October 1867 and died 4 May 1928. Buried in the
same section of the cemetery.
Her Hebrew name was Ester b Aryeh

I do not know if they married before or after they arrived in England.
They had a son, Harry B. GREEN, b July 1891 born in England but I have
not been able to find a record of it.

According to Benjamin GREEN's Naturalization record, they arrived in New
York on 20 September 1891. A census shows the year of 1892 so I have
searched the passenger lists >from 1891 through 1893 without finding their
arrival. I have tried various research methods such as only the first
names, only surname, and full names.

The family resided in Manhattan in 1900 but removed to Brooklyn, Kings Co
NY by the 1910 census.

The Wilkomir Young Men's Benevolent Association was Chevra Bnei Aaron
Anshei, Congregation. And Sons of Aaron Men.

I will be truly appreeciative if any one will assist me in finding more
about this family.

Regards,
Bettye Heinrich in California

Adonis / Adoni in Marseilles #france

Sue Levy
 

I have just joined this list and would very much like to track down some of
my ancestors.

My father told me his father Joseph ADONIS (ne ADONI) was born in Marseilles
in the early 1880s, then travelled to Palestine where he met and married my
grandmother. They migrated to Australia about 1910 with two young sons and
settled in Perth.

I believe there is a Turkish connection - the name Adoni appears in Jewish
lists >from Constantinople which is thought to be their previous home.

If anyone can offer any suggestions about how I might search for birth,
marriage or death records for Marseilles I would be very appreciative.

My grandfather Joseph had a close friend and French speaker, Albert
Bidjarano (another Turkish / Sephardi Jewish name), who also settled in
Australia (South Australia). I have photos of Albert and his family that he
sent to my grandmother. If anyone knows of this family and would like to see
the photos I will be happy to send them.

Searching BERMANN from Koblenz including Theresienstadt survivors #germany

Bert de Jong <bdejong67@...>
 

Dear Gersiggers,

For over 14 years I have been researching the BERMANN family >from Germany,
mainly Koblenz and Zell.

In Koblenz lived the (Jewish) couple Simon BERMANN and Johanna DURLACHER.
On January 31, 1881 their daugther Hedwig was born, and on February 10, 1886
their son Alfred Max.
(In 1882 a son named Samuel was born, but he died in Frankfurt 1939)
I can't find any traces of Hedwig and Alfred Max, other then that their
citizenship was taken away during the war.

The same problem I find with 2 of their cousins.

Samuel BERMANN, was born on March 28, 1843 in Zell.
Samuel lived in Koblenz and was a wine trader. He married Sophie VOGEL and
the couple had 3 children:

1. Ernestine, born December 9, 1872

She married Emil LEHMANN, born July 11, 1872 in Anrath. Emil was a
merchant and the couple lastly lived in Offenbach am Main at Luisenstraße
82. >from a researcher who based his on information >from a book, I got the
information that Ernestine killed herself on September 25, 1942, 2 days
before her deportation.

However I found the death certificate of Emil, who died in Theresienstadt on
January 1, 1943. On this certificate is clearly written that he had
relatives in Theresienstadt. According to this document, his wife Ernestine
Bermann was also in Theresienstadt building HV room Q703. This would mean
that Ernestine did not kill herself in 1942.

In the newspaper "Aufbau" date February 23, 1945 (page 28) she appears on
a list of survivors >from Theresienstadt. Some more research done and..
Ernestine and her husband Emil were deported >from Darmstadt on September 29,
1942 with transport XVII/1. We know now that she survived Theresienstadt, and
she appears on a list of persons who entered the border of Switzerland
together with 1226 other survivors. She arrived in St.Gallen on February 2,
1945.

Also I can't find any information for her siblings:

2. Emil, born May 2, 1874

3. Max Eugen, born September 11, 1886 in Koblenz

Who knows anything about them?
